More than 95% of SSP’s income is derived from tenants that are listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange. SSP’s buildings are superior to most of its tenants’ competitors, both in design and location. The company takes great pride in its well-maintained buildings. All SSP’s properties are located in KwaZulu-Natal.
